My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My goal is to provide the absolute best possible care for my patients, delivered in a friendly, welcoming place, treating each of them like my family and friends. I will do everything to help patients navigate through the complexity of today's fragmented health care system. I always try to explain complicated medical issues in terms that patients can understand, and I suggest practical, evidence-based solutions to their problems, based on my training, my medical knowledge and insight, as well as from years of experience in delivering quality primary care.

Dr. French has been by primary care physician for thirty plus years. He has made a difference in my overall health and well being.

I woke up on morning with some unusual back pain that felt like kidney stones, which I've had before. I put off calling Dr. French because I was busy, but as the day wore on, it kept getting worse. I finally called about 3PM and he got me in immediately. After poking around on me a bit and talking to me and asking me a bunch of questions, he just couldn't get on board with kidney… See more

from lauri in KY March 16, 2018 for William S. French, MD

Dr French has distinguished himself to me as a doctor, not only in his routine medical care, delivering me from several longstanding, undiagnosed conditions, but in helping my family through a horrible tragedy, well beyond the call of current medical professionals. His referrals have all been excellent. In this era of doctors acting on behalf of the government and insurers, Dr. Frenchs'… See more

Dr. French has been my Doctor for many, many years. He is always supportive . I really like the way he listens to my concerns and explains what he recommends . His office staff follows his lead which makes the Doctor visits more productive. I really cant imagine having any other Doctor.
